Harvest Monday – July 20, 2015
There were a few days last week when I didn’t harvest anything – I couldn’t have cooked it, even if I could have harvested it, because my shoulder hurt too badly after my stupid little bicycle accident. By the end of the week, I was fine, though, so some things did get picked.
This was the view from the entrance to the building on Thursday. That day, some people from the urban gardening competition came to visit to get a look at my gardens and answer any questions I might have (the only one I could think of was whether they had any experience with the irrigation system I’m thinking of buying – seems like it really is a good one). Without them pointing it out, I wouldn’t even have noticed there were so many ripe tomatoes, so after they had left, I went and picked them.
The beans should have been picked earlier, they were a bit stringy, but since I couldn’t properly lift my right arm, that had been out of the question!
An attempt at showing the size of the zucchini I harvested yesterday (along with some lettuce and radishes I didn’t take pictures of). I don’t even know what it weighs yet, because my cheap little kitchen scales only go to 0.5 kg, so I’ll have to weigh it bit by bit as I use it up. (I think my mother picked a zucchini too, but she hasn’t sent me a picture or weight this time.)
